The washroom should work. Duolingo is probably using American English. Report it.

El baño is a great Spanish song too by Enrique Iglesias and Bad Bunny.

Yessssss that's what I thought about! You love Enrique? He's my King, I adore him and I'm seeing him on November 6th in Sofia, Bulgaria (my country) and that's why my profile picture is the Bulgarian flag in front of a photo of one of Enrique Iglesias' concerts in Bulgaria. <3 <3 <3

A room qualifies as baño if it has "a sink, a shower, a bath tub, a toilet, or other sanitary equipment". Anything goes, basically. (Sourced from the RAE, need to scroll down to "cuarto de baño".)

If you just want a toilet room, you can call it "(cuarto de) aseo" or "(cuarto de) lavabo", most commonly.

El baño is more for a bathroom in a person's house. Los servicios is the term more proper for a public bathroom.

If el baño is Spanish for bathroom, what is the word for toilet?

All good! I just found out it can be el inodoro or el retrete or el servicio or el lavabo. All better than the USA-inspired PC 'bathroom'.

The football player? I am not sure what "CR" is supposed to stand for. It's not a common nor recognised abbreviation for a toilet or bathroom.

Comfort Room is commonly used here. Or is it just Philippine English? idk why it is not recognized.

Ah, alright. I guess it's just local, then. I've never heard an English speaker call it "comfort room". But you may try and report it. :)
